How do you get rid of cheap things like dishes and clothes that you don't want?
I have just a few.

I could thow them into the trash, but seems like a waste. And they aren't valuable enough to sell at recycle shops.

Clothes can be picked up on certain days but I am not sure if it is considered trash. Not sure where it ends up.
Lots of people take clothes to places like recycle shops.

If you're going to throw things away then you can give away and recycle. Have a look at the Facebook group Mottainai Japan

Clothes I give to the homeless in Shinjuku and Shibuya. Furniture and other items I send to the second hand recycle shops and have sold on Yahoo auction.

There are many recycle shops that will certainly buy clothes. I don't know about dishes, but you can try. They won't give you much for anything, but you can have the satisfaction of having your things used again by someone...
